SpaceX to accepts Dogecoin as payment for sending a satellite to the moon

It might be known as the first-ever commercial lunar payload in history paid entirely with dogecoin, Geometric Energy Corp. said the DOGE-1 Mission to the Moon will launch aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket in Q1 2022.

"This mission will demonstrate the application of cryptocurrency beyond Earth orbit and set the foundation for interplanetary commerce," SpaceX Vice President of Commercial Sales Tom Ochinero said, "We're excited to launch DOGE-1 to the Moon!"

The payload will obtain lunar-spatial intelligence from sensors and cameras on-board using communications and computational systems, GSC said in the statement.

SpaceX is led by billionaire Elon Musk, the most prominent supporter of dogecoin. Propelled in large part by Musk's tweets, the price of doge coin has risen more than 11,000% year to date. As a result, dogecoin has seen increased adoption and use cases, including now payment for a trip to the moon.
